Pre-orders for the iPhone S will start at 12:01 a.m. PDT and can be out there to buy in Apple Stores on Sept. nineteenth, 2014, however what isn’t extensively recognized is that it seems like Apple is kicking off Personal Pickup availability beginning with preorders as properly. This signifies that you’ll have the ability to preorder an iPhone S and choose a retailer in your space and decide it up on launch day….
We’ve independently confirmed this information with a number of Apple Stores and Apple’s on-line chat. The choice to pickup an iPhone in retailer shall be out there in the course of the checkout course of and Apple may have a second line for Personal Pickup at every retailer on Sept. 19, 2014. This ought to reduce the preorder and launch day chaos for shoppers.
This info can also be (roughly) worded on Apple’s Retail iPhone page:
The massive day is coming. Pre-order iPhone S and have it shipped to you totally free, or decide it up in retailer. You also can purchase on the Apple Retail Store starting at H:00 a.m. on September 19.*
One consultant additionally confirmed the next:
In regards to retailer pickup, there can be choices obtainable for that at most shops, which can be indicated on the time of your order. The choice will exist whereas provides final.
Last yr, Apple’s in-retailer pickup choice didn’t start until three days after the official launch. Even then, the pickup option was halted simply at some point after it began after which resumed the following week resulting from an obvious glitch on the web site.
We anticipate the choice for Personal Pickup to grow to be unavailable quickly after preorders start till inventory replenishes for every retailer. Hopefully with the preorder choices and retailer availability, this yr’s iPhone S and S Plus launch can be a clean one.
